Cel­e­brate farm­ers on Ag Day

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

AGFORCE is en­cour­ag­ing all Queens­lan­ders to show their sup­port for farm­ers and join in the cel­e­bra­tions for Na­tional AgDay on Novem­ber 21.

AgForce Gen­eral Pres­i­dent Grant Maud­s­ley said agriculture was a cor­ner­stone of the Queens­land econ­omy and a vi­tal con­trib­u­tor to so­ci­ety, un­der­pin­ning tens of thou­sands of jobs in re­gional com­mu­ni­ties and thou­sands more in our cities.

“Na­tional AgDay pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for all Queens­lan­ders to cel­e­brate and be proud about our con­tri­bu­tion to feed­ing and cloth­ing the world,” he said.

Mr Maud­s­ley en­cour­aged Queens­land farm­ers and all those in­volved with agriculture to come to­gether and cel­e­brate their in­dus­try and way of life.

“On AgDay there are many ways you can mark the role of farm­ing and the con­tri­bu­tion it makes to the eco­nomic and so­cial fab­ric of our state and our na­tion,” he said.

“Host a lunch with all-Aussie pro­duce mak­ing up the menu, fire up a com­mu­nity bar­be­cue and raise money for a good cause or sim­ply share a pic­ture of fab­u­lous food and fi­bre on so­cial me­dia.”
